#754 (Opulence) – A cinnamon red with red shimmer.

#756 (Chilli) – An intense, bright pink red with minute shimmer that doesn’t come across when worn.

#724 (Burnt Sugar) – A sheer pinky brown with rose-gold shimmer. This shade is very sheer on my lips, but is a nice neutral. It would be a lovely shade for those with a lighter lip color.

#752 (Bitter Orange) – An intense red orange with minute gold shimmer. Like Chilli, the shimmer is barely noticeable when worn.

Chanel has discontinued its Glossimer range. If you were a fan like me, I’ll give you time to mourn.

The new Rouge Coco glosses are promoted as a non-stick, light formula that has coconut oil and vitamin E. It also supposed to smooth and plump the lips. They can be mixed together or layered over lipstick to enhance or slightly alter the shade.

Glossimers were nice to wear, but these are much more comfortable and moisturizing. I actually went the whole day wearing this on its own without needing to reapply lip balm, which is a big deal for me. I found that these bleed into my lip lines, so a clear lip liner is a must.

The wand has changed as well. It is fatter and thicker and much easier to use if you have full lips. It picks up more product, which allows for full coverage without dipping the wand two or three times.

There is a very light floral scent, which will be a turn off for some. It definitely isn’t as strong as Mac’s Vanilla scent, but it is there. It doesn’t bother be, but if you’re sensitive…beware.

The packaging is similar to the Glossimers, but with a thinner gold decorative band.

These can be found at Chanel counters or online for $30 (5.5g). Most of the shades are permanent with the exception of Impulsion (#776), Caviar (#778) and Fragola (#742).
